Category #2

lucky dube poster 2.jpg

I divide 80's music into 3 buckets. Hair Bands, Punk and Pop.

Hair Bands: Twister Sister - We're Not Gonna Take It (1984)
Man, when I was in 4th grade these guys were wicked cool. Watch it now, and, well, still awesome but in a different way lol

Punk: Dead Kennedys - Holiday in Cambodia (1980)
Unfortunately I did not discover this band until the 1990s, but what a break through group in the punk movement!

Pop: Michael Jackson - Thriller (1982)
This one probably needs no explanation. This song was epic and became an entity of its own. I remember going to the skating rink and when this video played EVERYONE would stop skating, sit on the floor, and watched with eyes glued to the big screen.


Thank you for your great entries :)

1.Survivor - Eye Of The Tiger

2.Grace jones

3.RUN-DMC - It's Tricky


Thank you for your great entries :)

First Entry:
From the one we knew as the king of pop and he titled it Billie Jean

Second Entry:
Lipp inc. Funkytown

Third entry:
from Madonna "Queen of Pop" since the 1980s with the song she titled like a virgin


Thank you for your great entries :)

Entry # 1 Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Want To Have Fun.

What woman did not identify with that song at some point? They just want to have fun and have a great time, this is a song that makes your day.

Entry # 2 Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

A song that marked this decade as one of the best, is a classic that young people today enjoy no matter what time it is.

Entry # 3 Michael Jackson - Thriller.

A song that was very fashionable at this time, there was no party where they did not place it and all at the same time they danced the choreography. Without a doubt it is a very influential song that when you listen to it you feel in the 80s

Thank you for your entries. All are great.

Great idea for contest! This is a tough one, so much choices, here are three of those (by order of years they came out):

#1. New Order - Blue Monday (1983)

#2. Bon Jovi - Livin' On A Prayer (1986)

#3. Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up (1987)
This one is maybe a little weird entry, this song became much more popular lately by "rickrolling" someone, but in that time Rick gained great success, and also it's a little funny entry

    Hi @olegw very good your contest.

    My 1st entry:

    Europe - The Final Countdown (1986)

    A very successful song in the 80's and with a very attractive sound.

    My 2nd entry:

    New Kids On The Block - You Got It (1988)

    It is the best American boy band pop, in my understanding of all time. Opening the way to the market to large groups in the genre such as: Backstreet Boys, NSYNC and FIVE. And "You Got It" for me the best song of them here I show you and I hope you like it.

    Eighties were not a creative years for the Rolling Stones. They roll through it on the wings of the old glory. But they do deserve their place in history of rock'n'roll, despite that decade of mixed emotions…
